Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Liner Note Author: Jay Landers .
Muze PNote Arranger: Barry Manilow.
Muze PNote JACKPOT: THE BEST BETTE covers the entirety of Bette Midler's career, starting with her iconic self-titled 1972 debut. All of Midler's biggest hits are here, from "Do You Wanna Dance" and "Beast of Burden" to the enormous ballad smashes "Wind Beneath My Wings," "The Rose," and "From A Distance." However, the 20 tracks also include less widely known fan favorites like Midler's sensitve reading of John Prine's "Hello In There" and a lullaby-like reading of "Baby Mine," originally from Walt Disney's DUMBO. Rarities include the swinging Christmas tune "Cool Yule" and a stark demo of "Something Your Heart Has Been Telling Me."

Artist Overview

Honolulu-born Bette Midler's flamboyant stage persona, born in the 1970s (though she had been singing professionally in the 1960s), is what makes people take notice, but the self-proclaimed Divine Miss M is more than a singing comedienne. In addition to being a skilled TV and film actress, she's also a canny interpreter of pop and novelty songs in a multitude of genres, some ranging back as far as the Jazz Age. She's tackled everything from the Rolling Stones' "Beast of Burden" to an album's worth of Rosemary Clooney-associated tunes with equal aplomb, and has made a splash on the silver screen many times (THE ROSE, SCENES FROM A MALL, BEACHES, and numerous others).

Professional Reviews

Dirty Linen (p.66)
- "A soulful take on the Temptations' 'Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me)
,' a scorching, electric-guitar-driven, version of the Rolling Stones' 'Beast of Burden,' and a heartfelt rendition of Julie Gold's 'From a Distance' show Midler's flexibility."

Bio

Bette Midler

Bette Midler grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, where she began singing at an early age. After winning several talent shows, it was clear what she had to do -- get the hell out of there! Ironically, playing an extra in the film, Hawaii, she earned enough money to move to New York City. She soon landed on Broadway, playing Tzeitel, the oldest daughter in the hit musical, Fiddler on the Roof, and singing "Matchmaker" eight times a week. (Even then, she understood the importance of doing one's own matinees).

Once she began singing in clubs around town, word reached the owner of the famed Continental Baths, who immediately offered her a job. Performing at the baths, she developed the trademark act that would make her one of the most renowned talents of a generation. Bawdy humor, revealing costumes and a distinctive voice made for an act that was poignant, tacky and altogether fabulous. "I wouldn't say I invented tack," she boasted," "...but I definitely brought it to its present popularity." Her performances of songs like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy," "Delta Dawn," and "Superstar" were unforgettable and caused audiences to fall in love with the self-anointed "Divine Miss M."

After being discovered by Ahmet Ertugun, the legendary president of Atlantic Records, Bette recorded her first album, The Divine Miss M, which hit #9 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart and went platinum. In 1973, she won her first Grammy for Best New Artist. After successfully touring the world and returning to Broadway in the Tony winning, Clams on the Halfshell, Hollywood beckoned. Midler's first starring role in the feature film, The Rose, garnered two Golden Globe Awards, a Grammy for the film's title song and a best actress Oscar nomination. The Oscar itself went to Sally Field, whom Bette has arm-wrestled for the statuette -- but unfortunately, lost.

Forty years, four Grammys, four Golden Globes, three Emmys, a Tony Award and tons of record-breaking performances since she hit the scene, the "Divine Miss M" is still going strong. She recently said that although it's tough being a living legend, somebody's got to do it. "In other words", she added, "I'm not retiring and you can't make me!"
